HBM SHINES A LIGHT ON DEMANDING APPLICATIONS

HBM United Kingdom Ltd News and PR from HBM United Kingdom Ltd - Published 09 November 2018 When it comes to demanding test and monitoring applications, HBM a market leader in the field of test and measurement offers the perfect solution with its comprehensive range of FiberSensing optical (FBG) strain gauges and sensors.
Based on Fiber Bragg Grating (FBG) technology, the latest high performance range from HBM offers two lines of optical strain gauges and sensors which present a range of advantages, such as high fatigue limits, multiplexing and immunity to electromagnetic interferences.

Suitable for large sensing networks, the FS Line includes strain sensors in different formats and ensures connectivity along several kilometres of fibre without compromising the sensors signals.

Available in a variety of linear gauges or strain rosettes, the OP line offers outstanding resistance with intrinsic bending capability and offer the ideal solution for high strain applications.

Primarily used in structural testing, civil engineering, energy and aerospace, to name but a few applications, the inclusive FiberSensing range of products now available from HBM includes fibre optic Bragg sensors, such as strain gauges, temperature and tilt sensors. Also included within the range are accelerometers and interrogators which can be easily connected via TCP/IP to any standard PC using an Ethernet interface.

Featuring compact geometrical dimensions and high measurement stability, optical measurement technology is the ideal choice in materials testing at increased levels of strain and a high number of load cycles as, unlike electrical strain gauges, optical sensors offer immunity from these influences and are often the first choice for use in environments affected by strong electromagnetic interference. In addition to this, system downtime is also significantly reduced due to the extremely high stability and long service life of the optical measurement chain.
